spring

I love spring, for many reasons. There are many occasions that Mark and I celebrate together, our anniversary for one. And then my birthday is 10 days later. We have found that we need to save up for those seeing as how close together they are. But one thing we don't need any money to celebrate is springtime. Mother nature is at its best, and most beautiful, {according to me} in the Springtime. There are numerous primary songs about all the spring, but I especially love this one:
Because It's Spring
Why is the sky so blue and clear? Why is the robin's song so dear?
Why is the sun so warm and bright, Filling the earth with glorious light?
Why are the fields so green today? Why do the clouds all float away?
Why does my heart with gladness sing? Only because it's spring!

Last summer we put in our backyard, so I missed out on our spring flowers with the move. This year it has taken my breath away. We didn't pull alot of the small flowers we planted in the fall during the cold winter months, and I'm so glad we didn't. Our backyard is in FULL bloom now!

Spring, in all it's glory!

my little flower girl!


I must enjoy it while it lasts, for in Vegas, spring time is only a short month before the heat moves in for 3 long months.
